I did a more specific search:
I excluded pages mentioning GTK plus the developer lists. Still 160
hits, some on major sites. The main argument against naming it "2.0" is
that 2.0 is already known as "the all new, GEGL-based GIMP with
colospace support etc.".

I'm afraid, there would be lots of people asking "where is CMYK support
and where is GEGL?" It is very hard to alter such widespread knowledge.
It could get a real PITA.
